Music Specially for Kitty Cats

Music Specially for Kitty Cats A few years ago, scientists from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and the University of Maryland, wanted to study whether cats could respond to music. And so they created some music especially for feline sensibilities, as described in this article outlining the whole study.  It describes how Charles Snowdon […]

Pit Bull Without Eyes Finds a Forever Home

Recently I received one of those totally feel-good-never-give-up-hope-on-humanity stories (you can read more here) that starts off horribly — but winds up with a very happy ending for one roughly treated pit bull. This is the tale of a woefully unfortunate brown pit bull in Arizona, who was found wandering the side of the road […]

Rescue Dogs in Dog-Friendly Alexandria Virginia

Rescue Dogs in Dog-Friendly Alexandria Virginia I have always wondered what a dog-friendly hotel would really be like — whether the dog rooms would be like being sent “to the dog house” (kind of shabby) and whether the dogs would only be allowed in some less-than-lovely parts of the hotel and be relegated to the […]
